View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Alien

October 9th, 2009, 04:55 PM

I'm trying to to install Alien .. I use the command:

sudo aptitude install alien

But I get :

Untrusted packages could compromise your system's security.
You should only proceed with the installation if you are certain that
this is what you want to do.

debhelper libbeecrypt6 librpm4 dpkg-dev rpm alien

Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?
To continue, enter "Yes"; to abort, enter "No": Yes

Does this mean the servers are currently down or do I have something misconfigured? Its not the internet connection as I'm sure I'm connected (posting this)..

I also had similar errors when trying to install other applications from "Add/Remove.." and "Synaptic"..

I am using a bit old Ubuntu 6.10 live CD. Thanks in advance..

Edgy (6.10) has reached end-of-life, as you can see here: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

You'll want to upgrade to something more recent.
